Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted by Wisconsin jury last Friday of all charges in his fatal shooting of two men, gave his first television interview Monday night to Fox News prime time host Tucker Carlson. During a break in the interview, Carlson said that he thought it came through loud and clear.
Carlson’s portrait of Rittenhouse – “a working class kid who sincerely believes in America and tries his best to do the right thing at a time when almost no one else in this community is trying…” — echoes the valorous framing he has received from many on the far-right. Members of Congress have proclaimed they want him onto their staffs; Sean Hannity spent much Friday night encouraging for an internship offer (from Newsmax).
